At least 11 premature babies have been killed after fire engulfed a hospital in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, hospital and police officials say.
“I only found charred pieces of flesh, I want my baby boy and girl back. The government must give them back to me.”
“I came early this morning to see my nephew and his mother, but they told me about the fire,” she told AP. My nephew is still missing and his mother was moved to another hospital ward.”
“We pay the hospital employees thousands of Iraqi dinars to allow us in to get our loved ones basic food and milk, which they cannot provide. It’s a corrupt government that doesn’t care about its citizens and lets this happen.”
